'Impossible like this' - Real Sociedad's fury at Real Madrid VAR calls

'Impossible like this' - Real Sociedad's fury at Real Madrid VAR calls

"Así, imposible". "Impossible like this." This was how Real Sociedad summed up what happened on the pitch on Sunday as they lost 2-1 to Real Madrid.

The game was plagued with controversial decisions made by VAR. The match report on the club's official website reflected that, saying that it's hard enough to beat Madrid at the best of the time. With decisions like the ones they experienced in the 90 minutes, it is impossible.

The report complained about the preferential treatment Madrid received in the game, with a penalty given in their favour, a goal ruled out for the home team and a handball in the build-up to Madrid's second goal.

"It's always tough to beat Real Madrid," the club wrote. "Sometimes, like today, even more so. A debatable penalty for Los Blancos and goal ruled out for La Real left the home team without any points from tonight's game.

Later, it continued: "The second half twisted as soon as it began. A debatable penalty given for Llorente's challenge on Vinicius was converted by Sergio Ramos. Even though the goal was a blow for the home side, they responded and managed to level. A goal was scored, but it was ruled out completely unfairly. Merino was not impeding Courtois' view of Januzaj's shot, but the goal did not count.

"To top everything off, shortly after that no-goal, Benzema made it 2-0."

"It's a good dynamic and the players are responding well.

"We always want more and we have to emphasise this attitude.

"We've seen a team that wants to win."

Sergio Ramos was forced off with a knee injury halfway through the second half and Zidane had an update and some praise for his captain.

"His knee is hurting a lot now, but we think it's just a knock," the Frenchman said.

"He's the best defender in the world and he transmits his character to everyone."
